Congress opts for July All-Irelands

In one of the most fundamental changes ever to be agreed at an annual GAA Congress, from 2022 there will now be a split season for Gaelic games in terms of fixtures. It means that the inter-county season will be played in the first half of the year, with the All-Ireland final taking place in July.

The club season will then follow. The situation with regard to 2021 is still unclear, as the GAA await the latest public health advice from the Government and NPHET as to when training and games might be allowed to take place. A decision is expected towards the end of March.
